2 NEWSLETTER N 1 APRIL 2013 The European Year of Citizens 2013 The European Union has declared 2013 the European Year of Citizens, highlighting the 20 th birthday of the Maastricht Treaty, which gave birth to European citizenship. This project aims to raise Europeans awareness of and interest in their rights, so that they can fully benefit from them and get involved more actively in the EU. Therefore, citizens will receive more detailed information about their political rights and will be invited to take part in numerous events throughout the year. Several Europe for citizens points have been set up for contact purposes (http://bit.ly/xin5m9). In order to make Europe more democratic, we need a Europe-wide debate with everyone s active participation! The Rights of European Citizens Europeans have taken part in the making of history: the voluntary union of nations which used to be hostile to each other in the recent past. This multinational integration has led to a wide range of freedoms, including the right of free movement of people, goods, services and capital. But what about the political rights of the Europeans? In 1992, the Maastricht Treaty introduced the notion of European citizenship. It has not replaced national citizenship. Each EU member state retains the right to lay down the conditions for the acquisition and loss of nationality. The legislative act confirms and even extends some measures as follows:! the right to move and reside freely within the European Union;! the protection by embassies and consular authorities in any EU member State when there is no diplomatic representation in a country;! the right to stand as a candidate in and to vote for municipal and European Parliament elections;! the right to submit a petition to the European Parliament;! the right to complain about maladministration in the institutions and bodies of the EU to the European Ombudsman. The European Citizens Initiative (ECI) The Lisbon Treaty (2009) partially responds to the democratic deficit in the EU. It adds a dose of participative democracy to existing European legislation. Europeans now have the right to register an ECI and invite the European Commission to put forward a legislative proposal. Many criteria have to be met: for instance, the ECI needs to collect one million signatures in a minimum of 7 countries in significant numbers (e.g votes in France). The ECI must fall within the areas of competence of the European Union (http://bit.ly/mwq6jq). In this context, it seems even more important to support our initiative, as Let Me Vote! is all about the issue of voting rights within the European Union!

3 NEWSLETTER! N 1 AVRIL 2013! Let Me Vote : Latest updates In the last 15 months, the citizens committee of Let Me Vote has achieved an incredible amount to get to where we stand now. Our initiative is now officially open for signatures! These are the stages we have already been through. First stages First of all, a committee of citizens had to be set up. Therefore, a significant number of people had to be gathered around the idea of full voting rights for European citizens who are not nationals of the EU Member State in which they live. This requirement led us to set up national committees in several European countries at least 7 according to European law (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Luxemburg, the Netherlands and Belgium in our case). Secondly, many contacts have been established with three public institutions: the European Commission, the Luxemburg public authorities in charge of evaluating our initiative s software and finally the French authorities regulating individual data protection, the Commission informatique et libertés. As early as 1 April 2012, the exact day on which the apposite European legislation entered into force, our proposed initiative was submitted to the European Commission, which was in charge of verifying its admissibility. A positive response was been received in mid-may This indicated that the object of our initiative could be managed by the Commission. In other words, the change proposed by Let Me Vote concerns matters in which the EU is competent. This decision, published on the ECI webpage of the Commission, launched the 12-month deadline to collect 1 million signatures. Difficulties and withdrawal of the initiative At the time, we were not able to start gathering signatures, as Let Me Vote did not fulfill the conditions required: the validation of our collection system from one Member State was missing. Our experience, together with the experience of other ECIs launched at the same time, showed that such criteria are beyond a citizens committee s competence. The setting up and maintenance of the software were just too expensive to afford for a small association like ours. This dramatic situation convinced the European Commission to provide its own server based in Luxemburg: signatures and all other data related will be held there. This favour from the Commission will only be afforded to the first ECIs. We still had to assemble a dossier in which we clarified to the public authorities of Luxemburg the kind of measures that will be taken in order to secure our software and collection system. One year after the first submission of our initiative, we have just received the approval of these authorities, seized in February 2012!

4 NEWSLETTER! N 1 AVRIL 2013! New submission of the initiative By the end of last year, many months having been lost regarding the signatures collection process, we decided to withdraw our initiative. In this sense, we have followed the advice of the European Commission. A few months later, we have submitted the same text again, as our steps towards the validation of our collection system were progressing. Based on this new submission, we have received a second positive response from the European Commission on the admissibility of our initiative on 13 January The last few months have not been wasted. We have sustained good relationships with numerous partners. As a result, we have received the support of many European and national associations, including the Union of European Federalists (UEF). We are pursuing the dialogue with all the people who are interested in getting involved more actively or willing to support our project. The collection of signatures for Let Me Vote! will end up on 28 January The Commission informatique et libertés, the third institution directly involved before we could launch the collection process, has also validated the content of our project in February As the person in charge of our committee of citizens resides in France, the protection of individual data falls under the French law Informatique et Liberté, following European directive 95/46 on the matter. The data collected will be only used for the purpose of our ECI and will be destroyed by the first quarter of Moreover, every single person who have signed the initiative retain the right to access their personal data. The chaotic and sinuous way we have followed can be explained by the complexity and the administrative hassle of the European Parliament and Council. The latter have prioritised the security measures to be guaranteed by the committees of citizens, without any consideration on how they could help those committees. Therefore, it will prove extremely difficult for the European Commission to overcome the essential elements that are lacking in this legislative act.

5 NEWSLETTER! N 1 AVRIL 2013 The right to vote and to stand as a candidate in France There are different voting rights in France according to whether they concern a French citizen living abroad, an European citizen or a non-european citizen. Although there is a heated debate about voting rights for non-european citizens in France, the Let Me Vote European Citizens Initiative aims to extend the right to vote of European Citizens to regional and national elections in their country of residence. Its goal, thus, is not to oppose freedom of movement and respect of everyone s rights. French people living abroad do not lose their right to vote in France. They have the possibility to vote at the polling station set up in a consulate or an embassy for presidential and legislative elections, assemblies of French people abroad and referendums. If they want to vote in local elections, they have to be registered on the electoral roll of a French town. They can be registered both at the consulate and in a French municipality. The right to vote of European citizens who are established in a Member States of which they are not nationals was set out in 1992 in article 8 of the Maastricht Treaty. This gives them the right to vote in local and European elections. Two directives were adopted so that the Member States could implement the new regulations. Council Directive 94/80/EC of 19 December 1994 lays down detailed arrangements for the exercise of the right to vote and to stand as a candidate in local elections by citizens of the Union residing in a Member State of which they are not nationals. This directive was transposed into French law n 98/404 of 25 May 1998, a little more than two years after the end of the implementation period which finished on 1 January Very few countries transposed this directive within the established time-frame, nevertheless, France was the last country to enforce it: on 11 and 18 March 2001, for the first time, non French European citizens in France were able to vote in municipal elections. They can also stand as town councillors but cannot be mayors or deputies or take part in senatorial elections. They have the possibility to register in both their State of residence and the one of which they are nationals, but they cannot hold office in two towns. With this transposition, France chose a strict reading of the directive. Indeed, European citizens can only vote in municipal elections whereas some countries chose to extend this right to vote to other local elections. Council Directive 93/109/EC of 6 December 1993 lays down detailed arrangements which regard exercising a right to vote and stand as a candidate in elections to the European Parliament for citizens of the Union residing in a Member State of which they are not nationals. In France, this directive was transposed into law n on 5 February 1994.!
